Thread: Rod Socks

  1. #1

    Default Rod Socks

    So my sweet wife got me a Fishpond Dakota rod case for our anniversary. It is sweet. However, I now have another problem. My 6wt 4 piece Sage and my 4wt 4 piece Scott both came with tubes with built-in socks. So I do not have socks for these rods to use when I carry them in the new Fishpond case. I have looked at boh Sage and Scott's website and there is no mention of the availability of just socks. Where do you guys/gals get socks for your rods?

    me personally, im cheap so i try to save money any way i can. for a case i just use pvc, it might be heavy but so are rod cases. For a sock just use a old bed sheet or some type of cloth. i mean isnt that what a rod sock basically is. it might not look so hot but hey when your catching fish you'll be laughing

    those rod socks from the rod maker's store (also Results for Rod Bags) are nice. nothing fancy but they look good and work fine.

    another source is landmark: Rod Socks quite inexpensive. call ron.

    this site offers cool material designs: Bamboo Rodmaking Tips - Store - Rod Bags usually marketed towards the bamboo community, check out the designs and talk to him. many bamboo rod socks are designed to not have a flap so if you want one you may have to order the next size longer.

    the charcoal grey socks from pacific bay are very nice and quite luxurious i might add: Rod Cases & Socks : Products : Pacific Bay International

    also, you could always make your own from flannel or other soft material from a fabric store.

    I picked up a real soft sock at Bass Pro. It's their brand, White river I think. cost less than $5 bucks. I bought two canvas ones off ebay but they are too stiff. I like the real soft ones that won't scratch the rod.
    That's strange about the Sage and Scott cases. Both my Sage and Scott rods came with a rod sock that is not built into the tube. Must be because mine are the older models. I prefer the off brand cases that have compartments built in, makes the whole process simpler. Cabelas sells one but they are proud of it.

    i too like the soft ones. you need to check out the pac bay ones, very soft, but they're a bit more than $5. the thing is, i've never noticed scratches on the 4-5 rods i have in the "canvas" bags. it's actually cotton duck (in landmark's case).

    When i built my 2 wt i went to walmart and got about 1.5 yards of a sweat shirt type material for like 3 bucks and sewed it like a rod sock. Looks fine, its nice and soft, and dirt cheap. Just have to have access to a sewing machine.

    I make our own. Really is easy once you get the hang of it. Nice over flap, center ties and a loop toward the top to just flip over....plus you can use material to match your personality.



    Here is mine:
